Abstract:This poster proposes the use of Named Entity Recognition as a heuristic tool for improving manual document classification. This technique was developed as part of a project studying collaborative work via the acknowledgment statements found in a corpus of formally published journal articles. We demonstrate how uncertainty in our initial text mining results were `ground-truthed' using Natural Language Processing tools in a quick-and-dirty fashion. To verify this technique's validity, we offer some initial results from our larger study.
